Imagine little ferns in the mist...

feel the fairies sprinkling stardust

Songs on Soothing Flora & Fauna

CD M010

Xenicus Longipes

The four known species of bush wren in New Zealand

are, by now, endangered or extinct.

Possessing trifling tails and wings, none fly far--

instead they hop and dart

in whatever undergrowth scrapes the landscape.

Those on Cook Strait's margin of rock

entirely lost the capacity for flight

and in 1894 were destroyed not by farmers,

hunters, pet traders, rats, disease,

natural disaster or want of food--

but by Tibbles, the lighthouse keeper's cat.

Oh, what we think we need to survive kills others:

I have consuming need for my beloved, he knows--

and I hope he is not sorry.
